DCHS welcomes new staff for 2014-15 school year
Delmarva Christian High School in Georgetown announces a trio of new hires to supplement its already outstanding staff. The additional staff is a move toward providing a stronger foundation in curriculum, counseling and communications.
Matt Kwiatkowski joins DCHS as director of instruction. Kwiatkowski most recently held the Math Department chair at Dumbarton Middle School in Baltimore County. He was named Teacher of the Year for the Northwest area of Baltimore County and received multiple state assessment commendations, bringing a wealth of experience and knowledge. Kwiatkowski’s role will be to provide a support system for students and teachers through curriculum development. “My main goal is that the curriculum would help students understand God’s plan for their lives, and how they can glorify him,” Kwiatkowski said.
Terri Smith, newly named life calling counselor, moves to Delmarva Christian from Cape Henlopen High School in Lewes where she served as a college counselor. Smith, a member of the Delaware School Counselors Association, hopes to show students that a rewarding life is not simply measured by the prestige of the college a student attends. “I want each student to understand they are uniquely gifted, and called by God for a purpose. They each have gifts for serving others. I want them to live a life worthy of the calling they have received,” said Smith.
Joe Willey was hired as the DCHS director of story. Willey comes to Delmarva Christian from Maranatha Inc., home to WOLC and the Manna magazine. There he worked as creative director, enhancing radio, print and web communications for the ministry. Willey’s responsibilities will include communicating the current progress of the school in light of its founding mission and future vision as well as reaching out to supporters of the school’s calling. Willey hopes to show how God has been and continues to be the foundation of Delmarva Christian High School. That God’s story is the DCHS story.
